Nov.23 (GMM) Confirmation of Nico Rosberg’s move to Mercedes GP is edging nearer, with both sides now alluding to a deal.
It is an open secret that the 24-year-old German has inked a contract to race with the Brackley based team in 2009.
Asked about his lineup for 2010, boss Ross Brawn told Germany’s Bild: “I cannot tell you yet. My desire is to have two experienced drivers.”
Told that both Rosberg and Nick Heidfeld are on the market, the Briton added: “After four years in formula one, I would count Nico Rosberg as an experienced driver.”
It is also believed that, over the weekend, Rosberg gave an interview in which he hinted strongly that his 2010 employer will be Brawn/Mercedes.
